Bad Sisters

Apple TV+ today announced the premiere date for Bad Sisters, the witty and emotional darkly comedic murder mystery from Emmy Award-nominee and BAFTA Award-winning star and creator Sharon Horgan (Catastrophe, Shining Vale).

A delicious blend of both dark comedy and thriller set in the breath-taking coast of Ireland, Bad Sisters will debut globally on Friday, August 19 with the first two episodes, followed by one new episode weekly, every Friday through October 14. The new 10-episode series follows the lives of the Garvey sisters bound together by the premature death of their parents and a promise to always protect one another. In addition to Horgan, Bad Sisters stars Anne-Marie Duff (Suffragette, The Salisbury Poisonings), Eva Birthistle (Brooklyn, The Last Kingdom), Sarah Greene (Frank of Ireland, Dublin Murders) and Eve Hewson (Behind her Eyes, The Luminaries) as the Garvey sisters.

Bad Sisters is executive produced and written by Horgan with Brett Baer & Dave Finkel (New Girl, United States of Tara) who adapted it from the Belgian version of the series Clan, which was created by Malin-Sarah Gozin (Tabula Rasa, Professor T). Horgan, Faye Dorn and Clelia Mountford executive produce for Merman; and Gozin, Bert Hamelinck and Michael Sagol (Sound of Metal) executive produce for Caviar. In addition to Horgan, Baer and Finkel, the series is written by Karen Cogan, Ailbhe Keogan, Daniel Cullen, Perrie Balthazar and Paul Howard.
